Yimchungrü Baptist Boru Amukhungto (YBBA)

Brief History of YBBA:

Our Church history records that the gospel of Jesus Christ was propagated first from Sema (Sümi) Association. It was during the time of Dr. Anderson missionary stationed at Aizuto, Mr. Lhovikhu evangelist came preaching at Huker village  and on 15th of March 1947 Mr. Pongji and Mr. Rikiumong  were baptized as first Christians among the Yimchungrü Naga tribe. Following this the second gospel team came from Ao area called “Pastors gospel team,” on 21st April 1950 to Thsotokur village and preached about the kingdom of God; the team was led by the pastor of Longmisa village. Listening to their messages Mr. Yankiuba, Mr. Bümbakiu, Mr. Yansomong, Mr. Kiuthro, Mr. Ngangkiu, and Mr. R. Shophu were converted.

Meantime, as there was no mission centre, Rev. Imtiluin looked after this area stationed at Tuensang till 1958. And a year after, Rev.G. Kihoto was sent from Sema Association as an evangelist in 1959 and attended the formation of Association at Kiussor village on 13th to 15th November 1959. And after the formation of the Association Rev. Onenlepten Ao came as first Field Supervisor in 1960.
